Full color 9 1/2" x 13 1/2" ad that explains how Cadillac used their peacetime technology to develop engines and Hydra-Matic Transmissions for tanks. The text gives somewhat of a history mentioning that the M-5 Light Tank was developed first followed by the M-8 Howitzer Motor Carriage. Thousands of these machines were produced and are still in use in battlefields around the world. From the experience gained developing the previous tanks the M-24, which is pictured in the ad, was produced and is doing well in battle. These tanks are each using two of the Cadillac V-type engines driving two Cadillac Hydra-Matic transmissions. The text indicates that the wartime engines have been vastly improved over the peacetime engines which means that the post-war Cadillacs should be more dependable.

We are reminded that the people at Cadillac give it a great deal of thought and the 1964 Cadillac engine is the most powerful in Cadillac history. It is matched up with an improved Hydra-Matic transmission or, in some cases, a remarkable new Turbo Hydra-Matic". For these reasons and many others, this year's model is "more tempting than ever!"
